ALROSA Group’s sales come near $4.5 billion in 2016

11 january 2017
ALROSA, the world’s major diamond producer, posted rough and polished diamond sales for December 2016 and interim results for 2016.
Rough diamond sales by ALROSA Group amounted to $ 173 million in December 2016, while polished sales reached $ 3.3 million. Total diamond sales for the month were $ 176.3 million.
“Sales results in December in the small-size segment still reflect weakening of small and middle-size Indian diamond-cutting companies due to the monetary reform underway in this country. Activity in other market segments corresponded to the seasonality of demand and our expectations,” says Yury Okoemov, Vice President of ALROSA.
Preliminary data indicate that ALROSA Group raked in $ 4.486 billion from the sale of rough and polished diamonds in 2016, 26% up versus 2015.
